Covenant for Regathering


Covenant for Regathering

In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, I promise, with God’s help and to the best of my ability, to abide by the guidelines of the Diocese of
Maryland for participation in the life of my congregation according to
the regathering phase in which my congregation is authorized to carry out its mission and ministry.

In fulfillment of the Baptismal Covenant (BCP p. 304-305), I will strive to:

Love my neighbor as myself, I will…

  • §  Wear a mask or scarf over my nose and mouth at all times in churchbuildings, except momentarily to receive the sacrament or lead worship through an assigned speaking part, and follow public health guidelines for hand sanitizing and disinfecting
  • §  Only attend worship and receive communion if I am non-symptomatic for the COVID-19 virus or any other transmittable disease that could compromise the health of another congregant
  • §  Will abstain from attending if doing so would put me at greater risk due to my own health statusRespect the dignity of every human being, I will…
  • §  Make no physical contact with people beyond the members of myown household
  • §  Maintain a six foot or more distance from other members of thecongregation
  • §  Respect any requests for distance, masking, cleaning, to ensure thesafety and comfort level of othersSeek and serve Christ in all people…
  • §  Trust and support the decisions of both my diocesan and congregationalleaders
  • §  Stay connected with others in my community by telephone,video chat, or mail
